ORIOLES RUMORS & GOSSIP

JJ Hardy reportedly out 6-8 weeks with fractured left foot

While they’ve gotten off to a respectable 14-10 start to the 2016 season, it may become more of an uphill climb from here. According to a report by Roch Kubatko of MASN on Monday, two-time All-Star shortstop J.J. Hardy has been diagnosed...
